If you that 'Biscuit Trophy’ was the funniest trophy, think again. Because Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has come up with another funny trophy design and Twitter is having a field day. Last month, the trophy for T20I series between Pakistan and Australia was designed just like a biscuit after it was sponsored by a biscuit company. PCB then was trolled heavily for designing such a bizarre trophy. PAK vs NZ 1st Test 2018 Live Score Updates.
Meanwhile, PCB did it again and for the Test series between Pakistan and New Zealand and the designed the trophy as per the sponsor once again. This time the two teams will be fighting for the 'Oye Hoye' cup. And this has once again given Twitterati a chance to make fun of PCB.
Ahead of the first Test match between Pakistan and New Zealand, the captains from two teams, Kane Williamson and Sarfraz Ahmed posed with the trophy. It apparently went viral with fans finding the trophy and its name both funny. Live Cricket Streaming of Pakistan vs New Zealand 2018 on SonyLIV

Here are some of the reactions:
you need to hire an artist who can design a trophy that befits the occasion of top level cricket. The sponsors are making these cheesy trophy which makes these trophies jokes;

Yeah, ideally there should be a trophy that signifies a rivalry, like The Ashes or Border Gavaskar. Lame trophies such as this should be restricted to shorter formats

After the limited-overs fixtures, Pakistan and New Zealand are currently locked in a three-match Test series. The opening match of the series is going on at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
New Zealand after winning the toss, opted to bat first and were bundled outdoor just 153 runs with spinner Yasir Shah picking three wickets. Fast bowlers Mohammad Abbas and Hasan Ali chipped in two wickets each, so did the part-time spinner Haris Sohail. Another spinner Bilal Asif picked a wicket as well. Pakistan earlier won the T20I series 3-0 and the three-match ODI series was shared by the two teams 1-1 after the third and final match was washed out.
